I'm relatively new to LJ, and while I'm enjoying it, I've heard the experience is significantly enhanced by actually having friends. A little about me: I live in the US. I am a student, work a part time job, have two dogs, a chinchilla, and five fish, and I like to ramble... a lot. I post quite often, and like to write my posts like letters. I've written so many unsent letters just as journal entries offline that I felt it would be a good medium here as well.
My journal is actually mostly a crafts journal, where I like to document my progress in building and creating cosplays as well as other things of artistic value. Other than that, I like to talk about my job, my favorite TV shows, books, and PC gaming.
Television: Firefly, Sherlock, Merlin, Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, Buffy, Angel, Doctor Who (but mostly the Nine-Ten era)
Games: World of Warcraft (on an extended hiatus due to school), Mass Effect trilogy, Elder Scrolls games, Portal, Fallout 3 and New Vegas
Other interests: cooking, drawing, science, oboe, piano, musical theater, British culture, running, animals, technology
If I left anything out that you'd like to know, please feel free to ask!
